This afternoon I got to go to another bridal shower for Jessie. Such fun...It was at her other maid of honor's house down in Huntington Beach out in her back yard. It was such a nice day. The weather was perfect, and Jessie looked soo adorable. I had planned on taking a lot more pictures than I did so that I could post them here and Melody could see how everything was. It was kind of weird (probably just for me) that she wasn't there for something that was all about Jess. I know she missed being there that's for sure. Jessie got soo many nice things including a family cookbook that Diane put together for her. This brought Jess to tears, so you know it meant a lot to her. I have decided after looking at these pictures that I am somewhat disappointed in myself as I have soo obviously gained a little of my weight back. I have been off my diet really ever since the breast cancer surgery and move etc. I know it is no excuse but stress just means eating to me. And in the long run it just produces more stress. But what's done is done and I do have my appointment for Jenny Craig on Tues. I was SUPPOSE to go last week ~ but it is a long story as to why I didn't which I won't bore you with. Please pray I get back into the grove of the diet. I still have quite a ways to go, and undoing all I had accomplished, (almost 60 pounds) is just NOT going to happen this time. Health wise especially it just has to be over. Anyway, I have had such a nice week-end and I am soo grateful. My mom and dad came for dinner last for the first time in the new house and we played cards. Soo fun (even though we lost Mom) and I am looking forward to more nights like these to make this house feel more like home. I am anxious to have a holiday here, and to make new memories. Sooo, here are some of the pics I took of the shower minus the ones where I looked REALLY awful....sigh.....I am missing my girl tonight too. Female family gatherings without her just don't seem quite right somehow, but I am glad I got to be a part of this day with Jessie.
